On May 26, 1979 Laurel Maryland hosted the AMA 1/2 Mile Chesapeake National. We believe this was one of only 2 motorcycle races ever held at the Laurel Harness Raceway. The 1979 event was promoted by racers Taylor White and Denny Palmgren.

Be sure to check out the race program which is part of the album you see below. Great bios on the racers and some real retro advertising from motorcycle businesses that are now long gone.
